Canadians and Americans visiting each others' countries scarcely realize there is a border. It is one of the world's least restricted large international boundaries. It rarely takes more than "a smile and a wave" to successfully pass through the border inspection.
What a contrast when the welcome mat is suddenly lifted! Canadians who wish to work in the U.S. are astounded to discover they can no longer come to the U.S. at all. The U.S. is highly protective of its labor market. This is true even when the workers come from the U.S.'s neighbor, friend, and closest ally.

An essential part of NAFTA is the reciprocal removal of each country's labor market protections. Nevertheless, one must work for this privilege. This 900+-page book shows you how.
